Reunification During a Critical Incident

Circumstances may occur at the school that require parents to pick up their student(s) in a formalized, controlled release. The process of controlled release is called “reunification” and may be necessary due to a critical incident that occurs at the school.

The Standard Reunification Method is a protocol that makes this process more predictable and less chaotic for all involved. Because a controlled release is not a typical end of school day event, a reunification may occur at a different location than the school a student attends. If this location is another school then those students may be subject to a controlled release as well.
